Shape: Oval
Duration:2 min
Metallic oval shaped object that moved across the sky and then stopped and hovered and was out of sight with no trace.

There was one craft, it looked like a metallic balloon with a bottom section with a cone shape on the underside. (http://www.ufoevidence.org/Photographs/Photo44.htm is almost exactly what we saw)It moved across the sky a smooth, rapid speed and then just stopped and hovered. At that point we moved behind a building for about 10-15 seconds and by the time we got on the otherside it was no where in site, we had plenty of room to see for miles in many directions and was too low to have gone above the clouds in that short of time. There was an airline jet in the background coming in for a landing at ORF and a bird in closer, so it couldn't have been that high in the air. It was very visible, and distinct...no where near the clouds that were in the sky.
